New publication at CJFAS

Recently, a paper authored by myself and colleagues from IMR has seen the light at the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. This research focuses on the mortality causes of coastal Atlantic cod in Skagerrak (Southern Norway), using a Multi-event modelling approach to obtain cause-specific mortality probabilities for the different types of fishing gear used in the region. We expect our results to improve local knowledge on cod mortality and to influence future management decisions. You can download/read the full article in my researchgate profile page.
